Mobile everything

Mobile TV, mobile search, mobile music, mobile mapping, mobile MySpace and mobile YouTube – it’s all happening at this week’s 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona.

It’s driven by necessity as much as a desire to help you get more from your handset: mobile phone shipments are growing, but there’s been a trend towards entry-level, budget phones, and that’s hitting suppliers’ profits. They need to encourage us to fork out for fancier phones with larger screens and more powerful processors because those are the models that warrant the higher price tags.
